I bet that stuff or any foam works great, but I still think you will have to clean out the foam every few years. I would expect it to act like a filter that must be changed/cleaned every so often.

I will have to check into this more cause it probably beats cleaning gutters every year.:D

My gutters used to clog all the time with leaves and pine needles from all the trees around my house. my husband hated getting out the ladder and cleaning them. I finally installed a gutter guard so that we wouldn't have to worry about it anymore. It's called Gutterglove Gutterguard. It's has a stainless steel mesh on an aluminum frame. It looks and feels pretty heavy duty. I ordered it and installed it myself. I am so happy with the way it is performing. We don't have to clean the gutters anymore. It was well worth the investment and I would recomend it to everyone!
